7 April 1917; Saturday

Up at about 7.45. Very busy all day. A man brought in before dinner and was dead. He had a nasty wound above the left eye. Captain Strickland on all day. A man with a cut artery – posterior tibial artery, and it was drained† 3 times. Harvey and Holman said at night that the U S A have declared war on Germany. Were paid at night. I drew 40 francs. A very heavy bombardment at night and the 47 Division went over to our left. Germans used liquid fire. I saw the spray very well. Turned in about 10 o’clock.
